Run Daddy Run
RUN DADDY RUN came about whilst noodling around on minor chords in a drop-D tuning and the words 'run daddy run, mama's got the gun' just seemed to fit the space and the mood. (And no, it's not advocating violence - it's just the bluegrassy way of saying 'Dad, you're late home and Mum's not very happy about it'). Our buddy Gleny Rae sets an ominous mood with her fiddle playing.
